WNBA THREAD
« on: May 11, 2014, 12:35:08 PM »
Less than a week until WNBA Season Tip-off!

After attending my first WNBA game last year, I told my lesbian friend I would attend more with her this year.  The All-Star game is actually here in town this year too, so I was thinking I may try to go, just to have decent seats at an All-Star game.  I am tried to tell my buddy that All-Star weekend included a Lay-Up Contest and a Free Throw Shootout and he believed me.

Will this be the year I start following the Connecticut Sun?

No. No, it probably won't be.

The Sun are going to suck this year: they're in straight rebuild mode. They tanked for the #1 pick, they traded their best player (former league MVP) for a handful of magic beans, and their second-best player for not much more.

People tank in the WNBA?  That's pretty funny.  I actually followed the league for the first few seasons, but then the Houston Comets kept dominating everyone and it got old.  The Comets don't even exist anymore!

I might give it a shot again this year since I like elements of women's basketball.  It is sort of like watching basketball in a time warp since you actually see lots of plays and the action moves at a pace reminiscent of the 1930s or 1940s.

Mutombo and Matt Ryan are the resident "celebrity" male Dream fans. Deke can be found at most home games sitting next to the owners, eating popcorn and barking at the refs. Usually only see Ryan until mid-July, or whenever the hell it is that NFL training camp starts.

Also, what the hell did Candace Dupree do to her hair?

Nah.  I wanted to but my WNBA-lovin friend ended up making other plans, so I had no one to go with.  I was super curious about their fan fest the day before.

I did find out my friend's friend is an acquaintance of the best friend of Diana Taurasi's weed dealer.  Small world.  :)

I turned this on to see if DellaDonne is doing anything positive. Turns out she is but Phoenix is just on a tear.
And Diana Taurasi is still in the league? It feels like a long time ago she was playing at UCONN. Maybe it wasn't as long ago as I thought.

I think the East vs. West coast in the WNBA this year was like real NBA.

Phoenix was like 29-5, whereas Chicago was 15-19.

I got invited to Sunday's game but had stuff to do.  My friend is at tonight's game.  I'd go to Game 5 if it comes back (Best of 5 series) but I don't think it makes it back.

It's not just this year: Indiana is the only current eastern conference team that has ever won a championship. The only other team to ever win a championship for the eastern conference relocated to the western conference, six years ago.

This is also the fifth consecutive year that the #1 seed in the east failed to reach the Finals. In fact, it's the third time in five years that the #1 seed in the east failed to get out of the first round.

There is something wrong when the champion of your league might have a record of 15-19. That's just sad. I don't know how anyone, except maybe for fans of the team, can be excited that a team that is 4 games under .500 might hoist the trophy.

If it makes you feel any better, they're not going to win.

Most of the positive sentiment regarding Chicago being in the Finals revolves around the fact that 1) Elena Delle Donne is one of the 2-3 most popular women's basketball players in the world, making her as close to a "ratings grabber" as actually exists for the WNBA, and 2) most WNBA fans claiming to be sick of the fact that the actual best team in the eastern conference keeps getting to the Finals and losing. So, a lot of the sentiment is less "pro-Chicago," and more "anybody but Atlanta." I think a lot of WNBA fans have a blind spot to how terrible the east, outside of Atlanta, really is.

Chicago didn't even have DellaDonne for most of the season. She's been out with Lyme disease and a bad back here recently. And she's trying her hardest to remain on the court with her back.

Even with her though, they are pretty terrible. I'm just glad she is back out there even though she is nowhere near 100% and may never be again.

Of course, nobody mentions that one huge difference between the WNBA and those foreign leagues is that most of those foreign leagues are subsidized by their respective governments.

If US taxpayers were footing the bill for the W, we could pay the players a half mill a year here, too.

I was kind of shocked though that a top WNBA player like Taurasi only gets paid a 100 grand a year. I know WNBA's not terribly popular but still seems like it should be more than that. That's like a fifth the NBA league minimum!

What's more alarming is the fact that 36 other players in the WNBA make as much as Taurasi. That's insane; it's literally a quarter of the league. Can you imagine how fucked the NBA would be, if there were a hundred guys making as much as LeBron James?
